Booker T believes CM Punk will come back to professional wrestling

CM Punk has washed his hands of professional wrestling since leaving the WWE back in 2014. Since then, he’s worked towards other careers, attempting an MMA career and writing a few issues for Marvel Comics.

While his career in the UFC hasn’t exactly gone as planned, losing his first fight to Mickey Gall, CM Punk looks to redeem himself on June 9 when he takes on Mike Jackson, who also has a 0-1 record thanks to Gall.

While discussing All In on his podcast, Heated Conversations, Booker T mentioned the possibility of Punk returning to the wrestling world one day.

I think he’ll be at All In. I think if he loses this fight, he’ll be at All In, with the Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes, making his way back to the pro wrestling world. I really think CM Punk misses the wrestling world, I just think he had a bad taste in his mouth. But he can get it back.

Punk has stated on multiple occasions¬†that he doesn’t plan on returning to professional wrestling. However, as many wrestlers and personalities in the business have said, the drive for wrestling never fully leaves your system.

Do you think Punk will return to pro wrestling at All In? Do you think he’ll win his fight on June 9? Let us know below.

    I think if he does return, it will be unexpected. No one can predict when someone has a change of heart, and the more you try to force it the more they’ll resist.

  • CC

    I think a wrestling return is inevitable. Chances are he will do a one off show at some point, even if it is not All in, and will get a taste for it.

    I think a WWE return is unlikely, but this is the wrestling industry, and nobody ever expected to see Bret Hart return to WWE or Ultimate warrior end up going into the HoF on good terms.

    To wrestling, yes. To the WWE… absolutely F’ing not lol
